Scape wins stormwater harvesting contracts

Erina based civil contractors, Scape Constructions Pty Ltd, is the successful tenderer for a $4 million stormwater harvesting project at Terrigal and Hylton Moore Park let by Gosford Council in early December.

The project is for the design, supply, installation, testing, commissioning of two stormwater storage and treatment facilities as well as reticulation located at Hylton Moore Park and Terrigal CBD. The water will be used to irrigate Hylton Moore Park, Terry Oval, Terrigal Bowling Greens, The Haven Oval and non drinking water for the Crowne Plaza.

Gosford Council has predicted that more than 80 million litres of town water will be saved each year by harvesting the stormwater.  Hylton Moore Park will cost approx. $1.6 million with a saving of 32 million litres of water while Terrigal CBD will cost approx. $2.2 million with a saving of 50 million litres of water.  The Federal Government will contribute $3 million. Completion is expected in early 2013. 

Commenting on the project Scape Director, Andrew Smith, said, “As a local contractor we are committed to providing services to the Central Coast, we are pleased to be a part of the project. We believe stormwater harvesting is a worthwhile endeavour for the future water sustainability for the Central Coast region”.

Scape Constructions was recently awarded a 2011 Master Builders Association Award for “Efficient Use of Water” for the Peninsula Recreation Precinct at Umina and this project will further Scape’s profile in sustainable and environmentally friendly projects.
